Porcelain is a man-made material used for floor and wall tiles as well as household items such as crockery. It is made by a dust pressed method from a mix of ingredients that result in a dense, fine grained and smooth tile. It can be manufactured to be glazed, matte or unglazed and in a range of thicknesses, sizes and colors.
Setting porcelain tile on your floors instead of linoleum, wood or other alternatives provides you with a floor that is extremely durable, very easy to clean and highly attractive. There are none of the issues associated with the porosity of stone, granite or marble because the convenience has been designed into the tile during manufacture.
